Lemon and Orange Risotto With Calamari & Zucchini


This recipe was born after I tried a pasta dish with orange.  Thinking of creating a risotto dish with orange then adding lemon came to mind. Citrus goes very well with seafood so pairing them with calamari came out a good combination and the subtle taste of zucchini gave a healthier touch.  This risotto reminds me of summer even if orange is not a summer fruit.  If you are using oranges, please be sure that they are not sour.  This is a refreshing dish especially with the addition of mint.

I have other two recipes using fresh orange juice in cooking rice and barley.  They are Orzotto (Barley) With Agretti,  Shrimp & Oranges and Orange Rice With Cinnamon and Chocolate.
